(A look back in time to the dark, distant 1980's and the mind of a 19yr old...)

Have pride and joy
but don't toy with nature,
conserve the future.
Taste, sweet and sour,
changes by the hour.
The two sides of life;
of trouble and strife.
Beg, steal or borrow but
you'll still pay with sorrow,
for tomorrow never knows
and very seldom shows.
You’ve put the price of freedom,
as high as birds can soar
but that will soon be out of reach
and this you can't ignore.
But there's little you can do
except rewrite the score.
